Next-gen Gran Turismo: details "soon," says Yoshida

News on plans for the next generation of Gran Turismo aren't far away, Sony Worldwide Studios chief Shuhei Yoshida has assured VG247.

Speaking in a VG247 interview that will be published later today, Yoshida said fans of the series won't have long to wait to see first real details of what's next for GT.

"Kazanori seems to have started talking about, so I won’t be surprised to hear more about their plans, our plans, on future Gran Turismo rather soon," he said.

Polyphony lead Kazunori Yamauchi has been mentioning his next game more of late, calling it "Gran Turismo 6".

He first confirmed development of a further title in the series in November 2010, just beyond the launch of Gran Turismo 5.

After a period of silence, a flurry of reports in recent months has put Polyphony back in the headlines, with Yamauchi saying in July that the studio is "always aiming for the latest technology and the latest expression.”

There are no serious details, however. It's not even known if Gran Turismo 6 will appear on PS3 or go to next-gen, as now seems likely.

The exec was speaking after last night's barnstorming Sony gamescom conference in Cologne, during which the firm announced a multitude of highly creative IPs and showed more on upcoming triple-A titles such as Naughty Dog's The Last of Us.

One game conspicuous by its absence, however, was The Last Guardian. Yoshida refused to be drawn on the status of the Team Ico title.

"We don’t decide what to talk about until close to those events, so we really don’t have the set agenda for any of these projects that you’re talking about," he said.
